"The town of Killyshandra is built on an eminence and presents a better appearance at a distance then what is realised on entering it. It is of an ancient date and there are [sic] scarcely any of the old town remaining except a few mud cabins, which are in some places intermixed with the best houses in the town" [Desc. Rem.]; "how do you know?" [pl];
